I finally see your face
In my rear-view mirror
With each mile I put between us
The road keeps gettin' clearer
I only wish that I could make a quiet getaway

Well you probably think I'm foolin' myself
That I just want to have my fun
But leavin' you believe me
Is the first good deed I've done
I'm only tryin' to save us from more heartache if I stay

Cause baby if I, if I, if I were an angel
If I, if I, if I were an angel
I would have earned my wings today

I didn't get a message
From anyone on high
And I don't get instructions
On who to save and why
No heavenly connections sent me down this way

But baby if I, if I, if I were an angel
If I, if I, if I were an angel
I would have earned my wings today

So look up in the sky tonight
Thats where I may be
High over the hillsides
Far across the sea
And if you hear the churchbells ring
Everything's okay

Cause baby if I, if I, if I were an angel
I would have earned my wings today
